Now that Donald Trump became the president-elect and plans to go ahead with his promise to build a border wall, a cement company located across the border wants a part of the action.
“We can’t be choosy,” Enrique Escalante, Chief Executive Officer of Grupo Cementos de Chihuahua (GCC) said in an interview, according to the New York Post. “We’re an important producer in that area and we have to respect our clients on both sides of the border.”
Trump kicked off his campaign with the promise to curb illegal immigration, beginning with the construction of a “big, beautiful wall” that would stretch along the approximate 2,000 mile border.
Escalante’s company is based in Chihuahua, northern Mexico, a large city that borders both Texas and New Mexico. GCC also has three plants in the United States, where approximately 70 percent of its sales are generated.
Although Trump’s remarks and plans have been criticized by Mexico, with Escalante it’s strictly business.
“For the business we’re in, Trump is a candidate that does favor the industry quite a bit,” Escalante said.
There’s only one problem. Trump also said he would return jobs to the United States, a promise that wasn’t lost on social media.
